Where Were You During the S!CK Salem Show, NYC, 3.19.11?

post image

When people, weeks from now, ask me where I was five minutes before Salem was due to begin their NYC set at our S!CK party, (as part of their tour that willfully ignored SXSW), I will be able to answer that I was at a McDonald’s four blocks away from Santo’s, the venue.

The Aussie BBQ, Sans BBQ, Hit NYC on Sunday, 03.13.11

post image

Since we arrived to find a half-empty Bowery Ballroom with its Oz crowd chilling sit-in style during one of the acoustic acts that happened just after Grand Atlantic opened the day’s events, my trusty photographer and I decided to skip out for a quick mimosa at a French café across Bowery.

S!CK: White Ring, Von Haze, Blissed Out, Pictureplane and Shams (and More) at Santo’s

post image

There was one moment, I think it was during the Aaron K DJ set before White Ring was due to go on, the lights were pulsating at the “Warning; If You’re Prone To Seizures, You Are Having One” level, that I heard a girl right next to me let out a very loud shriek. I stopped, pulsated and moved toward the direction of the scream. It turned out she’d just spotted a “veeeerrrrryy good friend”, and as all living beings have done for millions of years, announced this fact to everyone at full hilt.

It was scary, it was amazing and then all of a sudden everyone was there to hear it.
